Oral Surgery Exodontia Workshop

April 24, 2020
7:30 am โ€“ 10:30 am
  • Karl Koerner, D.D.S., M.S.

In this hands-on course, participants follow-up from the previous day’s lecture to perform oral surgery procedures on life-like models designed by Dr. Koerner. Procedures include extraction of a a lower bombed-out 1st molar and maxillary 1st molar with flared roots including one that breaks on the edge of the sinus (model has a sinus). We will also cover retrieval of several root tips, multiple extractions, alveoplasty, frenectomy, cross-horizontal mattress and continuous-lock sutures. Attendance at course #T19 is recommended, but not required.

Learning Objectives:
1) Perform extractions in a patient simulation.
2) Prevent a root on the edge of the sinus from going into the sinus by using a hedstrom file.
